Create your own Run Command for any specific Application

You can make your own Run Command (program shortcut) to run a program or a document directly.
To use this feature, you will need to be logged into your computer with administrative rights.

Click Start button and type regedit in Run option then press Enter for next.
Here locate the location to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App paths 

Now right click on App Paths and select New > Key, title the key and name it whatever you want your run command to be. In this case, we will try to create a run command for googletalk application.

New > Key > googletalk.exe 

Now select the googletalk.exe folder and click right on (Default) string value then click Modify at the right hand side panel.
Here enter the path of the program that you want to execute in the value data field. In our case, the path of googletalk application will be

C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe. 

Now again in right side panel, click right to create a new String value with the name googletalk and its values as C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk\googletalk.exe.

Now close the registry editor and restart your computer after any changes to go into effect.
